Yesterday between 17:00 and 18:00 one of our guards had the opportunity to ride with a courier. The courier drove a Toyota Quantum. After about 200m two suspects joined them. As they approached the informal settlement the two suspects took out fire arms and instructed the driver to stop the vehicle. After tying up the driver and our guard, the suspects drove into the bush.
Whilst driving a telephone call was made, presumably to an accomplice. The accomplices arrived with a truck. Then everything that was in the Quantum got loaded into the truck, and the truck disappeared. The Quantum was driven into the informal settlement. The driver and our guard were left on the side of the road where police found them. Our OPS manager John Maluleke was informed about what happened.
After picking them up, our manager found the stolen Quantum in the informal settlement. The Olifantsfontein SAPS was immediately informed and after about 10 minutes Officer Chreswell and Constable Detective Ledwaba arrived on the scene. Constable Detective Ledwaba contacted the people responsible for taking pictures and finger prints.
